Dear Settlement Team,


We wanted to reach out to you to clarify a situation with a relative is yet to come to Canada under CUAET program. My nephew, 18 years old was been forced to flee Ukraine and has been residing in Germany for the last four months. She is 18 years old and currently located in Germany, so we wanted to apply for CUAET for her to come to Kitchener and live with us.

Would she be eligible to attend a public high school as a Canadian resident in Ontario or only as an international student with associated fees?

Thank you in advance

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

Yes, all children have the right to attend school in Ontario, here is an excerpt from Steps to Justice:
All children living in Ontario have the right to attend school. The law says that if a child is under 18 years old, a school can't refuse to admit them because of their immigration status or their parents' status.


You may also find helpful information in the Settlement.Org article, How do I enrol my child in school? and Information for Ukraine Nationals Coming to Canada.

We hope this is helpful, please follow up with us if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org team
